If you’ve been anywhere on the Internet lately, you may have noticed that Halloween is trending. It’s only September!! We’re all about Halloween, but at least wait until it hits October to break out the costume ideas!
Even though in our opinion, it’s a bit too early to hop on the Halloween bandwagon, fall themed crafts (that happen to have orange and black color schemes) are totally acceptable! So here’s a fun and easy way to liven up your cupcakes with a fall twist: chocolatey owl cupcakes!
All you need is your favorite cupcake recipe, some chocolate frosting, some Oreo cookies, and orange and brown M&Ms or Reese’s Pieces.
Bake your cupcakes and frost with chocolate icing. Then, carefully split 2 Oreo cookies per cupcake (keeping the frosting fully in tact on one side of the cookie) and place them atop the cupcake as pictured. Garnish with two brown M&Ms or Reese’s Pieces candies to finish the eyes, and add an orange candy between the two Oreo sides to form a beak. Voila! Cute, yummy owl cupcakes that are perfectly festive and appropriate as a pre-Halloween fall crafty treat!
